My sump plug will not come out, it just keeps turning in the casing!!!! 250 exc-f. I,ve only done one oil change and had a probem tightening it up last time. Managed to drain the oil from the oil screen as I,m fitting new piston n rings. Any ideas what to do? Thanks.

get a pair of mole grips and clamp then onto the bolt so you can pull while turning, if your lucky the threads will catch, failing that
if you have any play in the bolt try wedging a screwdriver between bolt and casing and lever while turning the bolt,
or do it the profession way and drill it out, but really you need to take the sump off/split engine to do this
have a spare bolt ready and a helicoil kit for when you get it out as you've most likely fucked the thread on the casing

Full engine strip down or leave it in their, make sure to get it fixed when you come to sell the bike though ;)
